THE SILVER STATE.
Frtilny. Jnur 4, IHHO. ■L—■— A BKllK OF IUMAU. Old residents of Nevada will remem ber one Harry Worthington, who was elected to Congress at the first State election in 18U4. He beat James A. 1 hulks, of this county, by a dozen votes in.the Union State Convention held at Carson in. October of that year, and was sent to Washington as Jhe repre sentative of Nevada in the Low'er House of Congress. Having no inter ests in Nevada, he never returned. He was appointed Collector ol the Port of Charleston, South Carolina, under President Grant’s Administration, and became the confidential friend of Jo!n» J. Patterson, who bribed the Legisla ture of that State to elect him United States Senator. lie was removed from o!hce when Hayes was declared Presi dent, and is now anxiously awaiting the success of the third tenners so that he may get another appointment. All the letters which he received from Patterson from the time he was made Senator, are now published in the New York Sun, and as they cover a period of several years ending January 20th, 1877, they are very interesting reading. They show how Patterson fixed a South Carolina Grand Jury, which he feared •would indict him, and expose the true inwardness of many of the bills passed at Washington in the interests of the rings which flourished under Grant’s seoond Administration. He writes that 1'ou Cameron, then Secretary of War, means “biz,” and that they could have all t e troops they wanted to carry the South Carolina election. Another let ter informs Worthington that ns Cun ningham, Mayor of Charleston, taxes his policemen $20 a month f#r three months in a year on a salary of §00 i>er month, he cannot see why the Custom House employes with salaries ranging from $720 to $2,50(|^ should not help him out. Spencer, Senator from Ala bama, informed him that his Federal officers raised him $10,000 a year, and he did not have as many as there were in South Carolina. The letters till three columns in small type in the Sun, and nearly all of them were written in the United States Sen ate Chamber. They throw some light on the secret history of the Electoral count in 1877, and show Patterson to be as graceless a scoundrel as ever pur chased a seat in any legislative body. Worthington, it appears, locked those letters in his strong box, and now ti.at h ; is out of office disposes of them to • i enterprising paper for a considera tion. Patterson is iffi ardent Grant min, and one of Cameron's right bow ers on the Republican National Execu tive Committee, and Worthington, we believe, is out of office. THE riBLK DKttT. Wily John Sherman made arrange ments for showing a large reduction of the public debt lor May, probably for the purpose of influencing the nomina tions at Chicago, and the arrangements have been carried out to the letter. During the Winter months the debt was increased rather than reduced, but the statement for May shows a reduc tion of 115,928,033 87 with $206,613, 5j6 in cash in the Treasury. Notwith standing the apparent reduction, the New York Era, a stalwart third-term organ, asserts that under the the ad ministration of Hayes, the public debt has been increased $150,000,000, and gives what purports to be the official statements of the Secretary of the Treasury to prove the assertion. From this time forward until the Presidential election is decided, large monthly re ductions in the public debt may be ex pected. That has been the programme for years, and of course this campaign w'U not be made an exception to the rule. Many suggestions have been n»a te as to the beat method of paying the national debt, but the cheapest and easiest way for the people is to have a four year’s Presidential campaign, and let the Secretary of the Treasury re duce the debt the customary amount when elections are pendiug, rfay from t«m to twenty millions per month. At that rate a few campaigns would wipe out the national debt, or what is more probable, show’ that the figures were falsified for partisau purposes. The Chicago platform opposes Chi nese immigration, but commends the admistration, although vetoed the Chi nese bill, , A UIMTMV t«Ml.\)K>rr«!lii It is not the custom of the StLVBK State to j>err«it its tolumns to be1 Used by correspondents Ibr the purpose of lauding individuate who mayor may not be candidates, but to-day we make an exception td the rule and give place to a communication from- a' prominent Republican of Paradise Valley extolling the virtues of “_Rriok” Palmer, a Well known citizen of this county. As “Brick” is said to have higher aspira tions than the State Sdnatorship, it is not probable that he would accept the place if tendered him on a silver platter. LATEST KKfl.1l (HKU.fl.
